Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Seattle Public Schools open this Friday for most students and Public Health – Seattle & King County (Public Health) has issued an important safety reminder for all of us.  Public Health reminds us that although classes will be taught remotely, it is still important to drive carefully in school zones.

According to Public Health, “…families may still be going to school for various reasons, including for grab-and-go meals and special education programs. Kids will be out walking to a neighbor’s house to learn in pods, going to the park, or biking or walking for activity breaks.”  And keep in mind that some independent schools and some school districts may be holding in-class instruction.

The rest of this e-newsletter includes updates on the COVID-19 crisis and other issues. 

As always, I would like to hear from you. You can call me at 206-477-1004 or you can reach me by email at

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
